Join Us for the 4-H Carnival
Purchase $1 tickets from 4-H members now to be entered in the drawing for cash prizes. Each ticket can also be redeemed for two booth tickets the day of the carnival.
Booth tickets will be sold the day of the carnival for 25¢ each.
The High Country Handiworkers will be hosting five booths including Toilet Paper Toss, Lollipop Pull, Lockbox, Iron Man Challenge, and Rubberband Guns. We will also be donating three baskets (Colorado Sports, Camping, Dog Care) for the live auction held at 12:00 p.m. and 2:00 p.m.
All proceeds benefit 4-H programs in Larimer County.
Enrollment is open at 4honline.com!
It's best to use the Chrome browser. New families will create a profile, and returning families can log in to their existing profile. New members: the medical portion does not need to be filled out at this time—it’s needed if you attend a camp or travel with 4-H.
The deadline for existing members to enroll is January 16. New members may enroll through March 1. After enrolling, changes can be made to projects until March 1 if necessary. However, Cindy needs to make the changes instead of doing them online.
Member dues ($50) cannot be paid online, so please bring a check made out to “4-H” to one of the upcoming meetings.
Those enrolling in a livestock project (including Dogs or Rabbits) must complete a Livestock Form. Shooting Sports waivers must be completed before members can take part in practices.
Please contact Cindy if you have any questions.
Attention 14–17 year old 4-H members:
Would you like to explore a different part of the country and meet new people?
The Exchange Club offers members the chance to learn about life and the 4-H program in other parts of the country first hand. This is a two-year program where clubs take turns traveling and hosting with a 4-H Exchange Club from another state.
4-H members must be at least 14 years old to travel and not age out of 4-H before the second year.
We are starting a new exchange this year and will be deciding where the club will travel. Now is the perfect time to join in!
The Exchange Club meets once a month and holds several fundraisers throughout the year. Members are encouraged to participate in as many as possible to help fund their trip and hosting activities.
Spaces are limited so don’t miss out on this exciting 4-H adventure! We will be holding a special planning meeting on Wednesday, November 1 at 7:00 p.m. in the Berthoud Room in the McKee Building at The Ranch.
Please RSVP by emailing Stacy Farmer or calling 970-217-4016 if you would like to find out more about Exchange Club and/or attend the meeting.
Due to a lack of registrants for the Hunter Education Class scheduled for this Friday and Saturday, October 27–28 the class has been cancelled. For those planning to attend, please finish with the online portion, as this is good for our next class or for any other Hunter Education Class, regardless of where the class is taken.
We are currently scheduling another opportunity for late March/early April and will post as soon as the dates are firm.
The newsletter for November/December is available now by clicking here.
The new Tractor Supply in Loveland is having their grand opening this weekend and is looking for some assistance from 4-H. They have asked us to work their Dog Wash on Saturday, October 21 from 10:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m.
This is the first Tractor Supply to have a dog wash. Customers will come in and have the ability to wash their dog. We would then sanitize the grooming table and the tub and hose it down and wipe it up, and then discard the towels in a bin. If you are a dog lover this is a great opportunity to see a variety of dogs. There is no charge—we would be doing it strictly for donations and to spread the word about 4-H.
Remember this is a community service as we need to spread the word about 4-H! Everyone in the club is welcome, including new members, not official members, and Cloverbuds!
Tractor Supply is located at 5428 North Garfield Avenue in Loveland.
Please go to the SignUpGenius to volunteer during one of the time slots!
This hunter education course will be offered on October 27–28. Please arrive no later than 5:45 p.m. on October 27 for registration.
This class will be held in the McKee Building at The Ranch, Loveland. We will promptly start the class at 6:00 p.m. Jim has a short amount of time to cover the class material. Students who arrive after 6:00 p.m. will not be admitted into the class.
The class on October 27 from 6:00–9:00 p.m. will cover firearm anatomy, ethics, and shoot/don’t shoot scenarios. The second day of class will consist of hands-on activities and a written test beginning at 9:00 a.m at Front Range Gun Club.
Students are required to attend BOTH class sessions. Class seating is limited to 45 students, so register early.
Questions? Contact Cindy Buckardt at 970-481-7993 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
(Another opportunity to complete the Hunter Education Class will be offered in the Spring during March or April, but dates have not yet been set.)
